NFL coach says Matthew Stafford and Sean McVay of the Los Angeles Rams will be an “amazing” pairing

Expectations for Rams fans have risen a few notches after trading with quarterback Matthew Stafford in the off-season.

And it turns out that they are not alone. At least one NFL coach thinks big things are ahead for the Stafford duo and coach Sean McVay.

“Stafford with Sean is going to be fantastic,” one coach said Peter King in his Football Morning in America column. “Sean has been waiting for a guy who can do anything he wants.”

McVay is known as a brilliant offensive spirit who led the Rams to a winning season in each of his four years in Los Angeles. He set a 43-21 record that also featured a Super Bowl LIII appearance.

At first it looked like quarterback Jared Goff would be the man under the center in Los Angeles for the foreseeable future. But as things took a turn for the worse in his development – as he was unable to use the entire playbook – McVay and his company decided it was time to move away from the earlier # 1 overall pick.

Ultimately, they decided that Stafford was the man they hope could lead the Rams to the Promised Land. While Stafford is destined to hit big numbers on McVay’s offense, his playoff experience is very thin for a quarterback starting his 13th season in the NFL.

Stafford is in the playoffs with 0-3 all time. Certainly it is not all a reflection of him as he has endured all sorts of dysfunction with the Detroit Lions.

Stafford now has the option to rewrite their playoff resume on an offensive that will be close to the top of the league. He will have the joy of throwing at greats like Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp, DeSean Jackson, and others. Not to mention, having McVay dial up for the offense is just another advantage he can take advantage of with his new team.

While the Lions were never a major threat during Stafford’s time in Detroit, his talent was never questioned. Stafford has recorded eight seasons with at least 4,000 passing yards. He averages over 23 touchdowns per season and 31 comebacks in the fourth quarter.

If Stafford and McVay can get in sync like this NFL coach believes they can, the sky’s the limit for what the Rams can achieve.
